Dull knives require more pressure to cut accurately, which can lead to smashing delicate fruits and vegetables, or worse, slippage from the added pressure that can send a blade into unsuspecting fingers. The primary cause of a dull blade are small folds in the edge that occur overtime from everyday use. The best way to combat these folds is with a honing steel like this 14" Butcher Steel – Traditional™ Series (1237-14) from Dexter-Russell. Heavy weight with medium coarseness, this butcher steel is well balanced and easy to wield. With a few quick strokes any folds in a blade can be realigned, allowing you to repair knives to their factory sharpness. The wooden handle provides a comfortable grip and features a hanging hook for easy storage.
